Gluten-free Banana-Apple Buckwheat Muffins / Brezglutenski mafini iz ajdove moke (Nagradna igra)

Unexpectedly, I have lost myself ...  I almost drowned in the flood of inspirational photos. Click, click, click .... A sip of home made ginger tea, not that 'tea bag' tea. Hmmm, just enough ginger. 5 minutes I pondered how many inches of ginger root to cut. And just when I decided ... yes, ahm, 1,5 inches will be just right ... no, I accidentally cut off another part. Do I add that part? It's already cut off, and now it will only start to dry, oohhhh! Uugh, I'll add it, yes. Welcome to my world of indecisiveness.

Just the right amount of ginger, perfect number of lemon juice drops and a pretty ''lemonade-like'' shade of tea. Regular tea drinkers will understand ... . colour of tea says a lot.

Tea + Photographs = Comfort, Peace, Wishes. Lots of wishes ..

I was searching a recipe for muffins with buckwheat flour. Because it sounds cool. Healthy. Something new. Gluten-free. And I had buckwheat flour in my food cupboard, for quite some time. All other components were conveniently at home. Rationality, I like that. And something healthy.

Nepričakovano sem se izgubila… skoraj utonila v poplavi navdihujočih fotografij. Klik, klik, klik.... Požirek domačega ingverjevega čaja, ne tistega iz vrečke. Hmmm, ravno prav ingverja ima. 5 minut sem premišljevala koliko centimetrov ingverjeve korenine naj odrežem. In ravno, ko sem se odločila, … ja, ahm, 3 centimetri bodo ravno pravšnji…ne, pomotoma sem odrezala še en del. Naj dodam še ta del? Zdaj je že odrezan, sedaj se bo samo sušil, oohhhh! Eh, dodala ga bom, ja. Dobrodošli v moj svet neodločnosti.

Ravno prav ingverja, pravo število kapljic limoninega soka in lep ''limonadast'' odtenek čaja. Redni pivci čajev bodo razumeli….barva čaja pove veliko.

Čaj + Fotografije = Udobje, Mir, Želje. .. Veliko želja

Iskala sem recept za mafine z ajdovo moko. Ker zveni fino. Zdravo. Nekaj novega bo to. Brez glutena. In ravno sem jo imela v omari, ne ravno, že nekaj časa. Vse ostale sestavine so bile prikladno doma. Racionalno, to mi je najbolj všeč. In zdravo.

Z ljubeznijo, Neja

The Recipe

Ingredients (makes 6 muffins)

2/4 cup buckwheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp coarse salt
2 large eggs
1 mashed banana
1/4 cup honey
1/2 finely diced (peeled and cored) sweet apple
1/4 cup chopped walnuts

The process

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place four baking cups in a muffin tin.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together eggs, banana, and honey. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry, then fold in apple and walnuts.

Fill the batter to the tops of the lined cups (these don't rise) and fill remaining cups halfway with water.

Bake 25-30 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Let cool on a wire rack.

Store muffins in an airtight container up to 2 days.
Sestavine (za 6 mafinov)

60g ajdove moke
1 čajna žlička pecilnega praška
1/2 čajne žličke mletega cimeta
1/8 čajne žličke grobe soli
2 veliki jajci
1 banana (spasirana, pire)
85g medu
polovica jabolka (drobno sesekljan)
30g sesekljanih orehov

Postopek

Pečico ogrejte na 175°C. V pekač za mafine položite papirčke za mafine.

V skledi zmešajte skupaj moko, pecilni prašek, cimet in sol. V drugi skledi zmešajte skupaj jajca, bananin pire in med. Z metlico zmešajte suhe in mokre sestavine ter dodajte sesekljano jabolko in orehe.

Do vrha napolnite papirčke za mafine (ti mafini ne narastejo)  in v preostale prazne prostorčke pekača vlijte vodo-do polovice.

Pečemo 25-30 minut ali dokler zapičen zobotrebec ne pride ven čist. Mafine pustite 10min, da se ohladijo.

Mafine lahko hranite 2 dni v nepredušno zaprti posodi.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Banana Bread / Bananin kruh iz polnozrnate moke


“How can a nation be called great if its bread tastes like kleenex?” 
Julia Child

This quote made ​​me laugh, because quite a few people who were in America, told me that you can’t find good bread in the US (I’m not talking about sweet bread but just regular plain bread). Would anyone confirm this? Does anyone agree? I had never been there (so I don’t know if this is true), but I was often tempted to try that banana bread that Americans love to bake. I baked this banana bread in our new oven and even though my Truffles prefer to see that I use white flour, I decided for this recipe with whole wheat, because I was so impressed. And he liked it!

With love, Neja
Ta citat me je prav nasmejal, ker mi je že kar nekaj ljudi, ki so bili v Ameriki, reklo, da tam nikjer ne moreš najti dobrega kruha (v mislih imam navaden kruh, ne teh sladkih različic). Bi to kdo potrdil? Se kdo strinja? Sama še nisem bila tam (torej ne vem, če je to res), me je pa velikokrat zamikal bananin kruh, ki ga Američani radi pečejo. Novo pečico sem krstila z bananinim kruhom in čeprav moj Tartufi raje vidi, da uporabim belo moko, sem se odločila za recept, ki vsebuje polnozrnato, ker me je tako navdušil. In všeč mu je bil!

Z ljubeznijo, Neja
Recipe from: Naturally Ella

The Recipe

Ingredients

¾ cup old-fashioned oats
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup walnuts
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup banana puree (2-3 bananas)
 ¾ cup maple syrup
 ⅓ melted butter
 2 eggs
 oatmeal and nuts to top

The process

1. Preheat oven to 350˚and generously butter/oil a 8 or 9" loaf pan (or use parchment paper.)

2. In a food processor, pulse oats until almost flour- I still like little pieces of oats left. Pour into a large bowl and add wheat flour, baking soda, salt, nuts, and chocolate chips.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together banana puree, maple syrup, melted butter, and two eggs. Pour into dry ingredients. Stir until just combined (don't over stir!)

4. Pour into prepared pan and sprinkle with oats and nuts. Bake for 50-60 minutes. Top should spring back lightly and when a knife is entered, it should come out clean. Let cool and slice!
Sestavine 

70g ovsenih kosmičev
130g polnozrnate moke
1 čajna žlička sode bikarbone
½ žličke soli
60g orehov
160g čokoladnih solzic
bananin pire (2-3 banane)
240g javorjevega sirupa
75g stopljenega masla
2 jajci
ovseni kosmiči, orehi za povrh

Postopek 

1.    Pečico segrejte na 175˚C in v pekač za štruce (20cm) položite peki papir.

2.    V multipraktiku zmeljite ovsene kosmiče (da bo kot moka, lahko pa pustite kakšne večje koščke). Zmlete ovsene kosmiče vsujemo v posodo in dodamo polnozrnato moko, sodo bikarbono, sol, orehe in čokoladne solzice. Premešajte.

3.    V drugi skledi zmešajte skupaj bananin pire, javorjev sirup, maslo, in dve jajci. Nalijemo v suhe sestavine. Vse sestavine premešajte (ne preveč).

4.    Nalijemo v pripravljen pekač in po vrhu potresemo ovsene kosmiče in orehe. Pečemo 50-60 minut. Vanj zapičite zobotrebec ali nož, ki morata ven priti čista, da preverite, če je dovolj pečen. Pustite, da se ohladi in kruh narežite na rezine.
